"...This amazing opportunity allowed me to share my passion for learning and internationalization with students and adults in my rural community. Besides designing my own class curriculum, I helped students prepare for speech contests and college English exams, translated documents between English and Japanese, and volunteered regularly at the local international center. Since coming to New York I have been working with various book publishing entities as an editorial assistant, proofreader, and manuscript evaluator. These experiences have further honed my writing skills, my understanding of the storytelling craft, and my love of good stories..."

"I'm a recent graduate from Tufts University and working part time as a journalist and part time as a tutor. It's pretty awesome — I get to use my knowledge, curiosity and analytical abilities to to help others learn in both jobs!

Most students come to me for help with the SAT, but I've also taught math, U.S..."

"...Good habits can make even the most challenging tests cower in fear from your knowledgeable prowess, but bad habits can set you up for perpetual under performance and unnecessary stress. I'm not just tutoring to help you learn a concept, I'm also teaching you the skills so you can ultimately teach yourself effectively. Some people thrive in large classes, but most don't. It's ideal to work one-on-one so you don't get bored with the easy concepts and the challenging concepts are set up so you're eager to solve the problem instead of drop-kicking your book in frustration..."

"...My unusual double major is a result of my inability to choose a favorite subject--I love literature and science! This love of learning translates naturally to my role as a tutor.
